    Interesting. I did not know about life achievement awards like this
    At age 8 I started out in DKA Coma told I’d never live past age 30. Just love those Dr’s that are so clueless. This is my 56th year as T1
    Congratulations for helping prove how little they knew back in 1964.

    A medal? You have to have diabetes for 50 years to get the first one, the names are different between the USA and UK.

    Hi
    I have been a diabetic T1 since 1968 when i was 6 years of age. I received my Alan Nabarro medal for 50 years of living with diabetes last October. I remember my mum weighing my food, sterilizing my syringe and needles. My blood testing machine was huge it was a bit bigger than a video box. Does anbody remember these machines?
